While previous studies and management conventions often adopt a finance-centric perspective of cross-border mergers and acquisitions (CBM&A or CBA), we demonstrate that CBA can be an effective platform to build a global corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, and that CSR initiatives can be customized for different locales. These CSR-CBA interconnections and customization respond to a range of stakeholder interests concomitant with both national and societal institutional factors. We develop a managerial framework for the CSR-CBA setting, and illustrate the framework with an exemplar of international expansion through acquisitions combined with an international development and implementation of CSR.

Abstract

While previous studies and management conventions often adopt a finance-centric perspective of cross-border mergers and acquisitions (CBM&A or CBA), we demonstrate that CBA can be an effective platform to build a global corporate social responsibility (CSR) program, and that CSR initiatives can be customized for different locales. These CSR-CBA interconnections and customization respond to a range of stakeholder interests concomitant with both national and societal institutional factors. We develop a managerial framework for the CSR-CBA setting, and illustrate the framework with an exemplar of international expansion through acquisitions combined with an international development and implementation of CSR.
